To help ensure all children enter school ready to succeed in kindergarten and beyond, the Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network created the Early Learning Collaborative (HITN-ELC) to produce research- based, engaging learning resources for three- and four-year-old children, their teachers and their families. Supported through a federal Ready to Learn grant, these transmedia resources provide multiple paths and opportunities for children to develop English language, literacy and math skills. Comprising apps, storybooks, games, and suggestions for teachers and parents, these integrated suites of transmedia resources have been proven effective through summative studies and pilot implementations across the United States and Puerto Rico.


Tapping and swiping are both intentional and appropriate as children explore and learn English language, literacy and math skills with the help of 15 immersive apps known as the Pocoyo® Playsets®. While the Pocoyo® Playsets® can be used independently, content learning and language development are optimized when children use these collaboratively with other children or with an adult.

Where to Find the Apps?

The Pocoyo® Playsets® engage each child in exploring, creating and learning new concepts and vocabulary, with fun and laughter! Find 15 Pocoyo® Playset® apps for math, literacy, and ELD on the App Store by searching for Pocoyo® Playsets®!
